The 2020 Subaru Forester is pragmatic if not passionate

If you want style and driving fun, look elsewhere. This crossover is practical almost to a fault.

Craig brought 15 years of automotive journalism experience to the Cars team. A lifelong resident of Michigan, he's as happy with a wrench or welding gun in hand as he is in front of the camera or behind a keyboard. When not hosting videos or cranking out features and reviews, he's probably out in the garage working on one of his project cars. He's fully restored a 1936 Ford V8 sedan and then turned to resurrecting another flathead-powered relic, a '51 Ford Crestliner. Craig has been a proud member of the Automotive Press Association (APA) and the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA).

There's nothing fancy here, just wholesome crossover goodness.

How do you like these 18-inch wheels?

Like its exterior, the Forester's cabin is a frill-free zone.

This utility vehicle's boxer four-cylinder engine delivers 182 horsepower.

The backseat is quit spacious, with plenty of room for heads and legs.

The Forester's profile is boxy, which hints at its generous cargo-hauling capability.

In case you forget what you're driving, they put the name right on the back.

Performance is adequate if unremarkable.

The Subaru Forester is a useful hauler.
